    2. Community Soup by Alma Fullerton is a realistic fiction book because the adventure the little girl has is an adventure that could happen anytime This is a primary level book because since there are no words in it, the pictures and story line are geared towards a younger audience This is a multicultural book because it is set in a Kenyan schoolhouse Text to text I would pair this book to Mary Had a Little Lamb by Iza Trapani because in this story not only does it tell the great nursery rhyme of M [...]

    6. Community Soup is a mix between the traditional stories of Stone Soup and Mary had a Little Lamb The soup is made from the community garden at school The little lamb is a goat and Mary is Kioni It s great to have a story setting that s not familiar to us the setting is in Kenya The artwork is also a nice variety from the typical picture book The artwork is paper sculpture and mixed media collage The end of the book also includes the recipe for Pumpkin Vegetable Soup if2015 Storytime Theme Commun [...]


    7. Kioni s herd of goats has gotten loose on soup day at her Kenyan school Kioni and her friends gather the vegetables and add a splash of goat s milk to the soup for a delicious conclusion.Text reads similarly to Mary Had a Little Lamb and 3 dimensional artwork combines paper sculpture and mixed media collage Following the story is a recipe A great multicultural classroom read, especially for any schools that keep a community garden PreK 2.




    8. perfect for an upcoming school visit The hard working school kids and the pesky goats The collage illustrations seemingly pop up from the page No 3 D glasses necessary.


    9. A lacklustred attempt at a story It borrows from the Stone Soup theme, and the Mary had a little lamb nursery rhyme It has the effect of giving us a disjointed read.


    10. The papercraft mixed media illustrations are well done The story is a bit odd and disjointed though I think it would have been cuter had the whole thing been a play on Mary Had a Little Lamb.
